I am a child of the 80's. So one year years ago I thought my kids needed toys I had. Why because they made me happy. Not thinking of what currently makes kids happy. Tablets, Ipods, XBox and more. It made me happy and that's all that mattered.
Enter the Easy Bake Oven.
I have had one in the closet for a few years. It wasn't gone and forgotten it was just waiting to be appreciated and used under adult supervision. After a special request for food to cook in it was rescued. The oven was pulled out!
Now I have seen a variety of meals to cook in it. From nachos and Mac and cheese to cakes and cookies. The only dilemma is will it work in only this specific oven or the oven we have. I have also looked up homemade recipes but based on reviews haven't taken a leap to see if the recipes are really reliable.
On this day little Miss made chocolate chip cookies with chocolate frosting. She was so excited and allowing her the independence from start to finish was exciting for her.
The packages come with all the ingredients. You just may need to add water. She was responsible for reading the directions, preparing the cookies and I observed her putting them in the oven and taking them off the pan.
She made the cookies, and frosted them any way she wanted. Some she dipped, others she spread chocolate in the middle and we tried to drizzle but, that didn't work real well.
Over all the recipes worked for the oven we had. They were easy for her to read, understand and follow. She was pleased with her final product and ate them happily.
These are definitely a snack for little people! What was one of your favorite childhood toys?
